Bryan's MK4 Jetta 1.8T Build List Aug 15, 2021

I bought this MK4 as a project in 2018. The only thing not missing was the engine. The exhaust, interior, hood, headlights, taillights, suspension, brakes, hubs, and bearings were all absent. The car was a rolling shell that was parted out and headed to a scrap yard before I saved it. Once I confirmed it ran, I started to fire the parts cannon at it. I found a MK4 part out thread, ordered the rest from ECS, and started piecing this MK4 back together. I have spent more than I should have on an old MK4, but I enjoyed saving it, making it run, drive, and perform better than ever.
